Swept Away 

is every excuse of the Poor Man, who 
for want of a chance, has 
No Home, No Church 

With us this is not a matter of guess work or experiment. At Empire, 
California, is the proof of our claims. Where four years ago there was a 
wheat field, today is a nice town, a $4,000.00 Church with about 250 mem- 
bers; and land values have increased amazingly. 

You Have Choice of Propositions 

We have now arranged to operate in Three New Places, in New 
Mexico, in Arizona and in California. In each case we guarantee the very 
best of soil, water and climate. 

Our Poor Man's Chance 

1. Those who can pay for land in cash or three annual payments will 
be grouped and offered land at lowest wholesale price. 

2. Those desiring long time will pay one tenth cash, balance on or be- 
fore 10 years. 

3 Those who prefer can begin by renting the land and buying when 
able to do so, paying for it with j^ the crop like rent— 

What More Do You Want ? 

We do not offer you something for nothing, and have no sympathy 
with schemers who lead you to expect $500.00 profit from $10.00 land. We 
offer honest goods. 

If you know what you want and are willing to use your own eyes and 
do your own thinking; we want you with us, believing that we can work 
for the benefit and profit of both.

WANTED- 320 

In The 



I F you are a man of family, ambitious to get on in the 

/world, and willing to do your part, we will put you in 
position to make money and gain independence. 
fl This company owns a large tract of land in the fertile 

1 Toy ah Valley of Southwestern Texas. This land has 

been pronounced by experts, the richest and most productive soil 
in the state. 

^ We have taken ten sections and divided them into 320 tracts 
of twenty acres each. Each of these farms will be leased for a i 

period of three years, with the privilege of making it five, to a ] 

man of family, under conditions that never before have been 
offered. This liberal contract will enable a man with little capi- 
tal to make more money from twenty acres than he ever earned 
from eight times the acreage in the east or north. 

HERE IS THE PROPOSITION TO YOU 

We will lease one of these little farms to you for the period men- 
tioned above, turning over the place to you ready to be planted. 

We will furnish the water for irrigation without cost to you. 

On each quarter section we are putting down wells and installing 
pumps with power sufficient to raise water for the proper irrigation of 
the entire one hundred and sixty acres. From each well we will con- 
struct a ditch that will deliver water to each twenty-acre place. 

All land will be broken and plowed ready to take water when the 
crops need it. 

We will furnish the seed for planting, and our superintendent will 
show you how to get it into the ground so as to get the greatest returns. 

On each twenty-acre tract we will build a comfortable cottage, barn, 
chicken house, hog yard, and other needed out-buildings. All you have 
to do is to go onto the farm and go to work. 

You will have to furnish your own work animals and farm ma- 
chinery — but we will arrange matters so that you may buy the necessary 
implements and pay for them at the end of the season. 

American Realization Company 



Ambitious Families 
Toyah Valley 



HERE IS WHAT WE REQUIRE OF YOU 

Having fulfilled our part of the contract, we make but two requirements 
of our tenants other than he must be a man of good character. 

1st. He must plant eighteen acres to cantaloupes, water, cultivate, and 
harvest them, giving to the company one-half the returns from the crop and 
retaining the other half as his share. 

2nd. He must have a family of at least five. This for the reason that 
a less number cannot handle eighteen acres of this crop and get the best 
returns. 

To make a success of this opportunity we are offering, the tenant must 
have not less than $500 in money when he comes. With this capital success 
is certain. 



WHAT TWENTY ACRES SHOULD EARN 

We have taken as a basis for calculating the returns the experience 
of those who are now in the valley who will be your neighbors. While ex- 
perienced growers have, and are making as much as $400 an acre from their 
cantaloupes, that is above the average; but a man of average energy who 
will go honestly to work, can make at least $150 an acre every year. On this 
basis your share from the eighteen agres would be $1,350. The two acres 
about the house you may plant to such crops as you wish, and the earnings 
from this land is yours. We confidently state that we believe that any man 
can clean up $1,500 on one of these places in a year. 

Don't you believe that this is worth your while? Do you realize what 
this may mean to you and yours? Is it not a chance to break the chains that 
bind; a chance to get into the glorious west; a chance to make a good living 
for your family under ideal conditions of climate and social surroundings; a 
chance to build a bank account, to gain friends, independence, and a new 
outlook on life? 

Of course it is. Don't hesitate, you can't lose by at least investigating; 
by looking into this unprecedented proposition. 

Ask your wife what she thinks of it, talk it over with the family; write 
for further particulars. This is an opportunity that may never come again. 

Just address your letter to 

Railway Exchange, Chicago, 111.

Mr. U. M. Gramley says: — "Five years ago I bought 40 acres of land 
in the San Joaquin Valley, California, paying $100.00 per acre for it. It 
was a new place with 20 acres of peach trees and 20 acres of alfalfa. My 
income from this for the past 3 years was as follows: 

Fruit sold from trees, $1,908.71 THIS IS OVER 

Dried Fruits, 5,127.50 

Alfalfa hay, 1,995.00 



Total for 3 years, $9,041.21 

Average Income each year, 3,013.73 

Mr. Gramley has refused $500.00 an 
acre for his property which five years 
ago cost $100.00 per acre.

Mr. W. M. Hemming-er says: — "Five years 
ag^o I came from Whiteside County, Illi- 
nois, and boug-iht 231/2 acres of land in the 
San Joaquin Valley, California, paying 
$50.00 an acre. I now own 67 acres of which 
20 acres are vines and trees and the bal- 
ance in alfalfa. My crop income each 
year is about $3500.00. Today I could sell 
my farm for $300.00 per acre. 

Mr. Andrew Kern says: — "Three years 
ago I moved from Pine City, Minnesota, to 
the San Joaquin Valley, and boug-ht 40 
acres of land at $80.00 per acre. I now 
have 16 acres of this in vineyard, 12 acres 
in alfalfa, and the balance in orchards and 
raw land. My vines and trees will come 
into bearinig- next year. My poultry yields 
me large revenue and the future looks 
bright. I would not sell my farm for Pive 
Hvuidred Dollars an acre. 

We Want To Start You 

on the way to do as well as these and thousands of others have done. We 
offer to sell you a homestead of this very fine cultivated wheat land at 
$100.00 to $150.00 per acre, on such terms that you can not fail to own a 
beautiful California Home in a short time. 

These lands are near Empire and adjacent to the Turlock District- 
one of the best developed and most prosperous sections of California — 
where lands sell at $200.00 to $600.00 per acre. 

Our lands lie directly along two trans-continental Railway Lines and 
are the best possible for the general farmer who desires to produce Al- 
falfa, Dairy Cows, Truck and I^Vuits. 

A few of our Church people already have homes near by, and we de- 
sire to build up here another strong Church quickly as we did at Empire.

^^5250 People have 

come here in the last ten days'* 

So wrote a friend of ours, in October, from Phoenix, Arizona. Since 
the completion of the Roosevelt Dam and Reservoir for irrigating a quar- 
ter of a million acres of farm lands, the Salt River Valley has become the 
Mecca of Homeseekers as well as Health Seekers. But there is yet room 
for millions more, and we want you to know the facts about this wonderful 
Vally and especially 

GLENDALE 

a town of 300 people with a million dollar Beet Sugar Factory, ten miles 
from Phoenix, the State Capital, with which it is connected by electric car 
line. Here a small group of our" people already have homes, and a Church. 
They recommend the country and ask you to help fill up this Valley, 
which has room for a hundred Church Congregations. Here is the largest 
and most dependable Irrigation Proposition- in the United States. Here 
is a soil containing 20% soluble plant food. The richest on Earth. A. cli- 
mate unsurpassed. Lots of good people and a Church. 

WHAT THEY ARE DOING 

The almost perfect combination of climate, soil and water makes pos- 
sible a large variety of crops that yield each year products valued at from 
$100.00 to $1000.00 per acre. Hence small farms are the rule— 20 acres 
being enough for the most industrious family. H. J. Biggs came here for 
his health. He bought ten acres from which he took $800.00 to $1,500.00 
each year and then sold it at $700.00 per acre. 

« 
ALFALFA, MELONS AND FRUIT 

are the best money crops. 

Alfalfa is cut 6 to 8 times and runs from $50.00 to $150.00 per acre. 
Alfaffa is a guarantee of large profits with pigs, chickens and cows. 

Mr. Hirst can show you a herd of ten Jersey Cows that bring their 
owner $1240.00 worth of Butter fat each year. $124.00 per cow. 

Another herd of 16 cows where the product was sold retail made 
$208.00 per cow, or $3,334.00 for the year. 

Mr. Murphy made $6484.00 from 12^ acres of Cantaloupes, crop of 
1911. $518.74 per acre. 

Of course you may not do this well, but these samples show what can 
be done. 

We have In mind an Orange Grove, whose owner refused $1600.00 per 
acre for it. 

We ofifer you here either improved homes, or raw lands at prices 
ranging from $50.00 and $150.00 per acre upwards — Good Rentals may be 
had also.

A Biographical Sketch of Eld. Grabill Myers 



By James A. Sell. 



He was born in Lancaster County, 
Pa., Jan. 6, 1808. August, 1831, he was 
united in marriage to Magdalena Weid- 
ler. In 1833 they located in Union Coun- 
ty, and in 1834 removed to Kishoquillas 
Valley, in Mifflin County. While here, 
both he and his wife united with the 
Church of the Brethren, being then in 




Eld. Graiaill Myers, aa Old-Time Preacher. 

A man of intelligence, after listening to 
a sermon by Eld. Myers, said: "He could 
fence the largest field with the fewest 
rails of any man I ever heard." 

the bounds of the Dry Valley church, 
which was under the care of Eld. Joseph 
Rothrock. In 1839 he located in the 
Aughwick church, Huntingdon County, 
which was at that time in charge of 
Eld. Christian Long, Sr. While here, 
in 1840, he was elected to the ministry, 
simultaneously with Christian Long, Jr. 
(who later located at Mount Carroll, 
111., and still later at Dallas Center, 



Iowa). In 1851 he located in the War- 
riors Mark church, Huntingdon County. 
He owned a farm in the extreme upper 
end of the congregation, about three 
miles north of Altoona. When he retired 
from farming he purchased a small home 
at Eldorado, Blair County, in the Dun- 
cansville church, where he resided until 
death. 

He was father of eight children,— four 
sons and four daughters. His wife 
died Jan. 24, 1880. Oct. 15, 1887, he at- 
tended the love feast at Altoona, did 
some preaching and seemed to be unus- 
ally happy. He had been confined to his 
home for some time, on account of bod- 
ily infirmities, but now, feeling well, he 
desired to mingle again with his breth- 
ren and, accordingly, arranged to attend 
the love feast in the Clover Creek church 
at Morrison's Cove on the 27th. He not 
only participated in the ordinances, but, 
did part of the preaching. He spoke on 
the Lord's supper, and it proved to be 
his last sermon, Prior to passing^the 
sacramental bread he lined and sang: 

"Amen, amen my soul replies, 
I'm bound to meet you in the skies, 
And claim my mansion sure. 
Now here's my heart, and here's my hand, 
To meet you in that heavenly land, 
Where we shall part no more. 

After the passing of the cup he with- 
drew from the table and went to the 
home of Eld. J. W. Brumbaugh, where 
he took his bed, from which he never 
rose. After suffering the most distress- 
ing pain, death came to his relief Nov. 1. 

It seemed so fitting that he who did 
so much traveling and preaching, and 
he who so dearly loved the cause of his 
Divine Master and the fellowship of his 
brethren, should be out on the field 
away from his home when death met 
him. He submitted to his fate bravely, 
and died like a Christian, looking for

the palm of victory and the crown of 
glory. As the shades of death were deep- 
ening about him, the gates of light from 
the better land opened, and death was 
stripped of its terror. 

His body was taken to his home at 
Eldorado. The funeral services were 
conducted by Elders James Quinter and 
James A. Sell. Six ministers conveyed 
him. to the grave at Carson Valley, Blair 
Co., Pa. He was lowered into the grave 
just as the sun was setting. 

It is a source of regret that there were 
so few of the incidents of his life re- 
corded. Nearly all who lived and worked 
with him, in his prime, have gone to 
the silent grave. Their lips are forever 
sealed to the expression of the deeds 
of life. Those of us who knew and 
worked with him, only knew him after 
he had passed the zenith of his best 
days. However, even at this late date, 
we had more than a glimpse of him, for 
in a sense he never grew old. The 
world never got away from him. He 
was old with a young heart. 

He received his education prior to 
the common schools. He was reared in 
a time and among people who did not 
greatly strive for education. In his 
day, schools and teachers and methods 
were in a crude state. His education was 
what is known as " limited." But what 
he lacked in education was, in a measure, 
supplied by native talent. He was a 
vigorous observer, had strong convic- 
tions, and was gifted with language and 
wit and humor. He believed in Jesus 
Christ; he believed in the doctrines, and 
believed them with his whole soul, 
preached them with all his might, and 
preached nothing else. A story never 
found a place to fit in one of his ser- 
mons. 

His preaching was always along prac- 
tical lines. The message of every dis- 
course was the letter of the law and obe- 
dience thereto. He looked upon salva- 
tion as a contract. If man complied with 
his part, the Lord could with liis. Once 
at a Sunday-school a referred question 
was given: "Who built Nineveh?" No 



one was just prepared with an answer. 
Bro. Myers answered that he thought 
it did not matter who built Nineveh; to 
hear what Christ said, and do it, was 
much more important. 

He had some peculiarities which were 
either ""aults or virtues, . as they were 
used or abused. Few preachers com- 
manded a greater influence than he in" 
the strength and vigor of his days. The 
announcement of his, coming always 
meant a full house. His delivery was 
free and easy, and he spoke in a conver- 
sational style, in the language of every- 
day life, and the common people heard 
him gladly. Some of his flights were 
rather oratorical, but he never attempted 
a figure of rhetoric. It was easy for him 
to get credit for more ability than he 
possessed. He frequently used illus- 
trations, and they were the plainest and 
simplest kind. They always contained a 
vital point that the most ordinary in- 
tellect could understand. There could 
be no mistake as to the application. Then, 
too, he possessed the rare ability of con- 
veying his ideas in few words, and this 
made his sermons bristle with points 
which held the attention of his auditors. 

He was no great reader. He secured 
his material for preaching more from 
observation and conversation than from 
books. This did not give him such a 
wide scope or depths to draw from, but 
what he lacked in this he made up in his 
aptness to present old things in a new 
light, and give them with the zest and 
freshness of originality. 

He made but few preliminaries, but 
plunged at once into his subject. In 
this he was frequently eccentric and 
original. He did but little in the line of 
exhortation, and rarely made a convert 
as a direct result of a sermon. He 
seemed to think that it was his mission 
to preach the Word, and leave it with 
the individuals to work out their own 
case, at their inclination. His presen- 
tations on doctrinal subjects were, at 
times, masterly. Usually, however, his 
discourses were made up of remarks in 
a general way, yet he was entertaining

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



and instructive. He looked his people 
squarely in the face, and his smiling 
countenance, earnest manner, plain words 
and peculiar gestures drew and held the 
attention of his hearers. 

He was corpulent. His avoirdupois 
was in the region of three hundred 
pounds. For a number of years, during 
the latter part of his life, he used 
crutches in support of his lower limbs, 
and always leaned upon them while 
preaching. Even this circumstance was 
in his favor, as it invited sympathy. He 
was blessed with a cheery good nature, 
and this frequently bubbled over and 
gave his sermons a tinge of the humor- 
ous. He appealed to the risibles rather 
than to the seriousness of his hearers. 
He moved his people to smiles rather 
than to tears. 

For many years he was favored with 
a pass on the railroad, a privilege which 
he used frequently and enjoyed immense- 
ly. He had retired from all business, 
and this gave him an opportunity to visit 
among the churches and preach for them. 
He was accorded a hearty welcome wher- 
ever he went, but he did not continue 
long in one place. He mostly received 
the prefefence, and usually was the first 
speaker at the meetings where he. was 
present, and also officiated at the love 
feasts.. He gained such a hold upon the 
laity that he was missed and spoken 
about with regrets when he was not 
present. 

Great as his influence was, and as 
much preference as was given him, he 
was not hurt when he did not receive it. 
He was not jealous or envious of oth- 
ers who might be looked upon as rivals. 
He could listen to a sermon with as 
much relish as he felt in delivering his 
own, and would respond in a public way 
to what he approved of. But he became 
restless while listening to a prosy ser- 
mon. He frequently remarked that he 
did not care who preached, if it was only 
done in a way that the "cause did not 
sufifer." 

It may not be generally known that 



the plan of dividing the church into 
State Districts originated with him. 
Wherever he went in his frequent visits 
among the churches of Pennsylvania he 
talked about it, both in private and in 
public. To him belongs the honor of 
bringing to pass the system of State Dis- 
tricts throughout the Brotherhood. He 
lived to see his plans fully adopted and 
never, while health permitted, failed to 
attend and take an active part in the 
District Meetings of Middle Pennsyl- 
vania. And such was his inbred mod- 
esty that he never referred to the work 
he did in giving to the church this new 
order of things. It is also worthy of no- 
tice that this departure was adopted 
with little opposition. 

While his jovial disposition and cheery 
nature made him a popular preacher, 
they had the opposite effect as an offi- 
cial in church government. It was 
thought by some that he was too jovial 
to take anything seriously. He was not 
in great demand to serve on committee 
work. He served but once as moder- 
ator of District Meeting, and never 
served on the Standing Committee. He 
never took any part in the discussions 
at Annual Meeting. In matters of dis- 
pute or difficulties he was more for ap- 
plying the modifying ointment than for 
probing the wound. In opening a case 
he would manifest firmness and sever- 
ity, but before the investigation pro- 
ceeded very far his great heart would 
melt in pity, and he was ready for a 
compromise. 

Socially, he was an agreeable compan- 
ion. He loved to be in company, and 
could adapt himself to his surroundings 
as few men can. He seemed to be equal- 
ly at home in the humble cottages of the 
poor or the mansions of the rich. It 
mattered little to him if his company 
were rude lumbermen around a camp- 
fire, or grandmothers in the kitchen, or 
ministers in the sitting-room, he would 
lead the conversation and he never 
wanted for anything to talk about. His 
talks were usually on the practical side 
of moral and religious subjects. In

fact, he spent nearly all his breath in 
talking for the church. 

He lived on the sunny side of life, 
and never burdened or clouded the lives 
of others with his troubles. He rarely 
mentioned them. He seemed to have 
none, or did not allow them to come to 
the surface. As might be supposed, a 
man so active as he and mingling so 
much with others, and expressing so 
freely his opinions, would sometimes give 
offense. At such times he was always 
ready to make amends and ask forgive- 
ness, and freely forgave when others 
wronged him. There was no malice in 
his heart. 

He lived a long and useful life, and 
left the world a better place because he 
lived in it. There was not a stain upon 
his character. It seemed to be an easy 
thing for him to be a good man. His 
very nature seemed to be inclined in 



that way. He r?.rely manifested any 
temper. He entirely controlled or never 
had any outbursts of passion. 

He loved his Savior and his Gospel 
and the church, and delighted in the serv- 
ice. He rejoiced in the advance of right- 
eousness and peace. He was extensively 
known and honored among the churches 
of his native State, and it is due him 
that the generation following should 
know something of this man of God, 
who went in and out among our churches 
and perhaps did more preaching than any 
man of his day. In many respects he 
set an example worthy of imitation. His 
mantle may be taken up by others, but 
not many will receive a " double portion 
of his spirit." ; i 

" He came to his grave in full age, 
like as a shock of corn cometh in his 
season." 

Hollidaysburg, Pa. 



Elder Peter Nead in Rockingham County, Virginia 



By D. H. Zigler. 



Unique in the history of the early 
church in Rockingham County, Virginia, 
stand the labors of Eld. Peter Nead. His 
attraction to the church, his devotion to 
her services and his willingness to sac- 
rifice any personal desire for her wel- 
fare is a story well worth telling over 
and over again. 

Peter Nead, a class-leader and lay- 
preacher, identified with the Methodist 
church, was led to a closer investiga- 
tion of Bible teaching by reading a lit- 
tle book, a treatise on Christian bap- 
tism, written in the German by Eld. 
Benjamin Bowman, whose home was 
near Harrisonburg, Va. A visit to that 
community, at the time of a love feast, 
and further inquiry into the teaching 
and practice of the church, were suffi- 
cient fully to convince Bro. Nead, and 
his baptism immediately followed. 

From the first his love for the serv- 
ices of the church was quite noticeable. 



and in a short time he was ordained to 
the ministry. In this important calling 
his ability to serve the church was aug- 
mented by his command of the English 
language. Prior to this time the preach- 
ing was almost wholly in the German, al- 
though this language was fast being 
supplanted by the English. Therefore, 
the acquisition of an efficient minister 
in this tongue was of inestimable value 
to the church. Bro. Nead soon was 
known as the " English preacher," and 
his services were eagerly sought after. 
These calls were not turned away and it 
is generally conceded that his timely 
ministration materially assisted the 
church in gaining the prestige so notice- 
able throughout the county. 

Furthermore, the transition from the 
service in German to the English, that 
quickly followed, was without opposi- 
tion on the part of the membership. 
Elder Nead's fidelity to the church, with

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



his willingness to sacrifice any personal 
preference for the sake of his fellow- 
members, allayed any feeling of resent- 
ment. 

In order to show more clearly his 
disposition to yield, an instance fre- 
quently mentioned is here given. At 
first Bro. Nead was rather stylish in his 
appearance, and the brethren did not 
take kindly to it. Especially were there 
objections to his custom of wearing a 
tall, white hat, after the order of the 
clergy of that day. The question arose 
how best to approach him in this matter. 
Finally, one Sunday, at the close of the 
meeting, Eld. Benjamin Bowman, at 
whose home the services were held, 
asked Bro. Nead to take a walk with 
him to the barn. On entering and clos- 
ing the door, he drew from the fanning 
mill a new, low-crowned hat. He said, 
" Bro. Peter, the brethren feel that the 
hat you wear is not in harmony with 
the humble profession you have made. 
We lovo you and desire that you may 
do a great deal of good in the church. 
Now, Bro. Peter, here is a new Breth- 
ren's hat that I bought you. Will you 
wear it?" Bro. Nead said, "Yes, I will." 
He not only took the hat and wore it, but 
changed all his clothing to the full or- 
der of the church. The kind, fatherly 
approach of Eld. Bowman is to be ad- 
mired, but the full surrender on the part 
of Bro. Nead was no less heroic and 
fruitful o^ mi ch good. 

Eld. Nead's home life greatly strength- 
ened his work in the ministry. Soon 
after uniting with the church, he formed 
the acquaintance of Elizabeth Yount, 
whose home was near Broadway, Va. 
Their marriage followed Dec. 20, 1825, 
and they settled on the Yount home- 
stead. Here he spent fifteen years of 
his busy life. Beside meeting the calls 
for his ministerial service, he conducted 
a tanning business and taught school 
during the winter. It was his custom 
to rise at three o'clock in the morning 
and read, write, or commit passages of 
Scripture to memory until six o'clock, 
the usual breakfast hour. The duties 



of the day were met in systematic order, 
and the evenings were spent with the 
family or in communion with his God. 
A giant oak tree near his door, from be- 
neath whose branches gushed a stream 
of bright sweet water, afforded him a 
favorite resort. Its beauty and its ma- 
jestic proportions were inspiring to his 
vigorous mind. The fount<:;in at his feet 
was constantly a suggestion of the "wa- 
ter of life " he was commissioned to de- 
clare unto a dying world. 

His home was a veritable sanctuary 
unto the Lord. In his dwelling, although 
extensively remodeled, the 'partitions, 
hung on hinges, still remain. These, by 
means of rope and pulley, could be easily 
adjusted to accommodate the " meetings 
in turn." Here the children of God met 
from time to time to worship, until 
the erection of a meetinghouse half a 
mile away. 

In 1833 Eld. Nead found time to write 
his " Primitive Christian," a book of one 
hundred and thirty-eight pages, treat- 
ing on the ordinances of the Lord's 
house. In business Eld. Nead was 
prompt and true to his obligations, and 
it is said of him that he was never late 
at church. » 

Nearly a century has rolled away since 
the time of those busy years and great 
changes have been wrought. The old 
tan-house in which he labored has been 
razed to the earth, and the vats have 
fallen into disuse. Other scenes are 
being enacted day by day, but that life 
"hid with Christ in God," still remains, 
and to generations yet unborn the name 
of Eld. Peter Nead will be made known. 
Broadway, Va. 

Red Pepper and Aunts. 

A small boy who lived with his aunt 
and grandma, noticed that the regular 
black-pepper shaker was filled with red 
pepper. This startled him, and, turning 
to his aunt, who sat next at the table, he 
said: "You better not eat any of that 
red pepper, Aunt Harriet; grandma says 
that red pepper kills ants."

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Annual Meeting of 1856 

By J. D. Haughtelin. 



This meeting, then called " Yearly 
Meeting," was held at the home of Bro. 
Michael Reber, on a farm near Lena, 
in Stephenson Co., 111., May 10 to 14, 
1856, in the Waddams Grove church, 
then a part of the Yellow Creek church. 
It was the first time Annual Meeting was 
held this far West. Bro. Henry Kurtz, 
in the Gospel Visitor, said: "In Illinois? 
Who would have thought, twenty or ten 



was not sent there, but was chosen after 
arriving on the grounds. There were 
no delegates sent by the local churches 
AH members present were entitled to a 
vote. There were no Missionary, Sun 
day-school nor Educational Meetings; 
no Mission Boards nor Foreign Missions 
to claim the attention of Annual Meet- 
ing. There was, however, a great deal 
of quiet, eflfectual home mission work

years ago, that such a meeting of our 
Brethren would take place so far in the 
West?" Bro. John Kline, in his diary, 
said: "Saturday, May 10, a great con- 
course of people on the grounds." To 
realize the meaning of " Far West " and 
" great concourse of people," as it ap- 
pealed to the writer and reader at that 
time, it is necessary to go back nearly 
threescore years and make due allow- 
ance for the many changes during that 
time. 

The meeting was conducted in a very 
informal, but fraternal, zealous and rev- 
erential manner. As there were no 
State Districts, the Standing Committee 



carried en all around by earnest, self- 
denying. God-fearing, zealous brethren 
and sisters, the foundation of the great 
mission work of today. 

The Sunday-school and educational 
work of the church was then in its in- 
fancy, except during the brief period in 
the early years of the church's organi- 
zation, content to be tolerated, without 
asking the approval of Annual Meeting. 

The Standing Committee had their 
rooms in the commodious residence. 
The large bank barn shown in the ac- 
companying cut, was used as an audito- 
rium. A large lumber tent was con- 
structed for a dining-hall. The people

were lodged and boarded free of charge. 
Homes of kind neighbors were opened 
to assist in lodging the people. 

The funds, to defray the expenses of 
the meeting, were raised by the churches 
of Northern Illinois, principally in Car- 
roll, Lee, Ogle and Stephenson Coun- 
ties, as appears by the balance sheet. 
Though the attendance and expense of 
that meeting were small, as compared 
with the present time, it required much 
more sacrifice and self-denial on the 
part of the churches in the vicinity of 
Annual Meeting than at present. 

On Sunday night it commenced to 
rain, and continued to rain until Wednes- 
day forenoon. Bro. Kurtz, in the Vis- 
itor, said: "The rich, black soil by con- 
stant rain was so softened, and by the 
moving to and fro of the many people 
so much tramped and loosened, that 
every vestige of grass disappeared. One 
step from the door a person would sink 
into the mud ankle deep, while the rain 
continued to pour down. It was im- 
possible for people, coming into the 
house, to clean their shoes sufficiently, 
and so the mud was carried into the 
house, upstairs, and everywhere in such 
quantities that it became difficult to 
walk up and down stairs without slipping. 
I never saw a house in such a condition 
before." I notice, in the expense ac- 
count, twenty-five dollars was allowed 
for cleaning the house after the meeting. 

In comparing the Minutes of that 
meeting, with the present, we see some 
change of sentiment along several lines; 
but, considering the great change in en- 
vironment, it is remarkable what a beau- 
tiful harmony prevails. In the first ar- 
ticle it is said that if a brother had 
taken more than lawful interest, he 
should be "required to restore what 
has been taken unlawfully." In the sec- 
ond article, property insurance is left 
optional. In Art. 4 they reaffirm their 
position on the temperance question. 

At this meeting the committee, pre- 
viously appointed by Annual Meeting to 
visit and confer with "the Western 



Brethren," who recognized Bro. George 
Wolfe, of Illinois, as their elder, made 
its report, which was accepted, and 
thereby all difference, that had pre- 
viously existed, was so arranged that, 
ever after, they fellowshiped and labored 
together harmoniously. Eld. Geo. 
Wolfe was present at the meeting. 

Art. 22.— A request, "urging that this 
Yearly Meeting devise a plan, how the 
church could fulfill the command of 
the Savior, in Matt. 28: 19, more ef- 
fectually." This request, and answer 
given, show clearly that the missionary 
spirit of the Gospel was impressing, and 
urging the church then as well as in 
later years. 

Art. 23 is a proposition to form State 
Districts, as we now have them. It was 
approved,, though there was nothing 
definite done in the matter at that meet- 
ing. 

Art. 24, the vexing divorce question 
was presented. The answer, "After a 
lengthy discussion this matter was re- 
ferred to the next Yearly Meeting," 
shows that the problem was much the 
same as it is now. 

Art. 28, "A request from the church in 
Fayette County, Pa., to have our dear 
brother, James Quinter, ordained," 
shows the importance attached to or- 
daining elders in those days. 

Art. 34, "An appeal from a number of 
members in Story County, Iowa, to send 
brethren to them for the purpose of or- 
ganizing a church." This "appeal" re- 
sulted in the organization of the Indian 
Creek church. Bro. Henry Flory was 
chosen to the ministry and installed with 
authority to baptize. He proved to be 
an earnest and efficient worker, and was 
ordained the next year. He traveled 
much among the isolated members in 
Western Iowa, — mostly by private con- 
veyance, at his own expense. He and 
the writer conducted the first love feast 
ever held in Shelby County, about the 
first of July. 1863. He was taken se- 
verely ill soon after returning to his 
home. He was called from labor to rest

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Aug. 25, in the prime of life. Two of 
his sons were chosen to the ministry 
later on. 

This description would be incomplete 
without a brief notice of the Waddams 
'Grove church, where this long-ago An- 
nual Meeting was held. 

In the fall of 1848 the members living 
in Stephenson and Jo Daviess Counties, 
111., were organized into the Yellow 
Creek church. There were about thirty 
members, with Daniel Fry as their elder. 
In 1858 the Yellow Creek churchhouse 
was built. In 1859 the Yellow Creek 
church territory was divided, and the 
Waddams Grove congregation was or- 
ganized, with about seventy-five mem- 
bers. Brethren Enoch Eby and Benjamin 
H. Kepner were the ministers, with 
Enoch Eby as foreman, in the absence 
of Daniel Fry as elder. In 1860 the Wad- 
dams Grove churchhouse was built on 
a lot donated by Michael Reber, about 
100 rods from the 1856 Annual Meeting 
barn. 

Michael Reber, who was conspicuous 
in connection with this Annual Meeting, 
was born of German descent in Pennsyl- 
vania, Oct. 16, 1817. The first love feast 



held in the Yellow Creek church was 
held in his home July 1, 1849. He was 
a faithful deacon and earnest worker in 
the Waddams Grove church until 1864, 
when he moved to Kansas, where he 
died May 22, 1907, "full of years and 
good works." 

In conclusion, let us note a few of 
the advantages of today over fifty or 
sixty years ago. Then, to take care of 
Annual Meeting, was a great burden and 
sacrifice. Now, many places are anxious- 
ly calling for it. Then, Bro. Kurtz's lit- 
tle Monthly Gospel Visitor represented 
the publishing interests of the church at 
a sacrifice. Now, the Brethren Pub- 
lishing House is a source of power for 
good, both in influence and funds. Then, 
comparatively few members were ac- 
quainted outside their home circle. Now, 
through the church literature and mis- 
sion work, we are one great family, 
with personal acquaintance in many parts 
of the world. Our sympathies and ef- 
forts are more united. We should do 
more and better work as the years pass. 
As our opportunities increase, so will 
our responsibilities. Father, help us to 
realize it!

Elder S. S. Mohler 

By Jesse D. Mohler. 



In writing the biography of his father 
one can readily give too strong coloring 
to characteristics he has learned to ad- 
mire in one so closely related. To avoid 
this the writer has, for more than a year, 
gathered material for this sketch from 
those who were acquainted with his fa- 
ther in early life, his associated in local 
and District church work and those who 
were associated with him in the work of 
the General Brotherhood. But few 
names are quoted, yet almost all that is 
here given is from the testimony of 
those best qualified to speak of the life 
and labors of Eld. S. S. Mohler. 

Born near Covington, Ohio, Sept. 22, 



1832, he wrestled with the problems of 
life until Dec. A, 1893, passing away at 
his home.in Warrensburg, Mo., after over 
four years of suffering. 

He was the fourth son of Samuel and 
Catherine Saylor Mohler, who continued 
to reside near Covington until the close 
of a long life. His boyhood was such 
as was common in that day. He helped 
as needed on the farm, obtaining such 
schooling as opportunity afforded the 
average farm boy of that time. This 
was later supplemented by careful read- 
ing, habit of thought, and by association 
with those who had been more favored, 
until he was known for his keen per-

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



ception, carefulness and accuracy of 
thought and for the strength of his 
views. 

Nov. 3, 1853, he married Mary Ann 
Deeter, who even in her youth was 
known for her Christian character, and 
who for more than forty years was a 
faithful and efficient helper to one who 
was called on so much by the church. 
Four years after their marriage, Nov. 
5, 1857, both he and his father were 
called to the ministry in the Covington 
church. He was advanced to the sec- 
ond degree of the ministry in the fall of 
'61 by the same congregation; and or- 
dained to the eldership in the Mineral 
Creek (Mo.) congregation Oct. 8, 1870. 

Early in his ministry he showed an 
ability that caused distrust on the part 
of those older in office. Preaching had 
been largely confined to explanation of 
Scripture and to exhortation. He per- 
ceived the possibilities of a developed 
discourse as he had seen in the work of 
but few of our ministers, and sought to 
work on that line. Those older in the 
ministry did not approve of that; and for 
several years his work was confined 
mainly to opening and closing the serv- 
ices. 

During this time he had secured a 
claim in what is now Nemeha Co., Nebr., 
— a rich farm for $1.25 per acre. How- 
ever, this was then so far on the fron- 
tier that he would not move his family 
to. it as a home, and traded it for land 
in Darke Co., Ohio, one-half mile west 
of the Harriss Creek churchhouse. 

In 1861 he moved to this farm. He 
expected to be of more use in the min- 
istry, but found that mistrust had 
preceded him. This was not lessened 
when, at the Annual Meeting held near 
Dayton, Ohio, in 1862, — as one writer 
informs us, — " S. S. Mohler, then a 
young minister, stood up for Sunday- 
schools, but was opposed by nearly all 
the old elders.'* His looking forward to 
the needs of a growing church was not 
appreciated. However, the elder of the 
Harriss Creek church soon saw the merit 
in those views that had been the cause 



of distrust, and apologized to the young 
minister who, he had been told, "wanted 
to know too much." After that the op- 
position to his methods ceased, and he 
worked freely as needed. 

An enjoyable experience during his 
residence in the Harriss Creek church 
was his acquaintance with Bro. J. G. 
Royer, who was then a country school- 
teacher and a deacon in the church. The 
two families lived neighbors for five 
years and many pleasant associations 
were experienced. 

Of this time Eld. Royer writes me: 
"We were together considerably; and I 
heard him preach quite often. . . . He 
always said something the hearer could 
take along home with him when he 
preached. ... He was a hard student and 
a logical reasoner and would give his 
hearers something to think about. Ev- 
erybody acknowledged his ability as a 
thinker and a logical expounder of Scrip- 
ture. Your father in that day stood 
among the first of the young ministers 
of Southern Ohio. . . . When he went 
West he left many who regretted his 
leaving the work in Ohio." 

However, he felt that newer fields 
were in need of his help. At the invi- 
tation of Eld. John Harshey and the in- 
sistence of his cousin and associate of 
boyhood, John M. Mohler, who had pre- 
ceded him, he brought his family to 
Johnson Co., Mo., in March of 1869. 
He soon located near what is now Lee- 
ton, and became one of four men who, 
with their wives, organized the Mineral 
Creek church Dec. 25, 1869. 

During the years following, until calls 
for his assistance in matters of church 
government occupied much of his at- 
tention, he was active in building up the 
cause in that and surrounding territory. 
This often involved hardships such as 
are common to. new countries, and many 
were the deprivations necessary, both 
for himself and family. He believed that 
when the Lord called him to go and 
preach he had special claim on the Lord's 
care for those he must leave at home; 
and sometimes went when human judg-

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



ment said his family needed his care 
too much for him to leave. But the Lord 
proved himself, and all grew to man- 
hood or womanhood and united with 
the church for which our father sacri- 
ficed so_ much. 

Of the seven sons who witnessed his 
sacrifices, one died in early manhood, five 
were called to the ministry and advanced 
to the eldership, and one has seen con- 
siderable service as a deacon and as 
Sunday-school Secretary for his Dis- 
trict. He saw his ten children in the 
church. 

The conditions that resulted in the 
divisions of the Brotherhood developed 
our father's ability in church govern- 
ment. He was soon re-cognized as a 
leader in his home and surrounding 
congregations. This recognition was so 
marked in his home congregation that 
when the presiding elder cast his lot 
with the Old Order Brethren, father 
became, by common consent, the presid- 
ing elder of the Mineral Creek congre- 
gation, without any action of the 
church. He continued as such, unques- 
tioned, during his active life, without 
any specified authority of the church. 

From this time forward his work was 
among the organised churches of this 
and adjoining Districts and of the Mid- 
dle States, and in dealing with problems 
of the church as a whole. One could 
hardly ask better appreciation than was 
shown him by associate elders of his 
District. For some years he had the 
oversight of a number of congregations 
and was actively interested in the wel- 
fare and progress of others. We often 
hear his name even now at our District 
Meetings. 

Six times he was chosen moderator of 
District Meeting, and a number of times 
he served on Standing Committee. We 
have been told by one of his intimate 
associates that he was the originator of 
a number of the measures that passed 
Annual Meeting during the latter years 
of his activities; and a statement later 



quoted from Eld. D. L. Miller bears 
this out in part. 

A perusal of Annual Meeting Minutes, 
from 1881 to 1890, and the work en- 
trusted to committees of which he was 
a member, afford a better view of his 
work for the General Brotherhood than 
the writer can give. We notice that in 
1889 he was chosen as moderator of An- 
nual Meeting at Harrisonburg, Va. But 
even at this time the many cares of home 
and of the church, especially the strain 
of committee work in churches out of 
order, were telling on his strength, and 
before another year had passed he was 
an invalid. He suffered much during the 
following years, but retained his strength 
and clearness of mind on church work 
until so worn in body he could not gath- 
er the strength necessary for careful 
thought. 

While, as given above, his best work 
was in church government, he both 
wrote and preached considerably. His 
work as a preacher was largely laying 
the foundations upon which others might 
build. He did not appeal so much to 
the emotions as to the power of thought; 
hence, to many his work was not so help- 
ful as that of some less able ministers, 
but to those who could follow his line 
of thought it is said to have ranked 
with the strong work of his time. 

Likewise his writings were of deep 
thought, careful and logical. While 
none of his writings is preserved, to our 
knowledge, the Classified Minutes of 
Annual Meeting proceedings stand as 
an evidence of his careful work and 
thoroughness. 

In his home his greatest desire was, 
not for accumulation of property, but for 
the careful rearing of each child to Chris- 
tian service and an honorable charac- 
ter founded on right thinking and right 
doing. During his sickness he said he 
had witnessed the answer to his most 
persistent prayer that he might see all 
his children in the church. His work 
among the churches was done, on ac- 
count of his suffering, and he often

During This Month 



thousands of siubscrir)tions to the Gospel Messenger will reach us through our local 
agents and otherwise. We expect the number to be larger than la>t year. Some of 
these will be new subscribers. What if each present reader would introduce the G-ospel 
Messenger in just one new home? How many new readers would there be? How many 
souls would be won for Christ? You can help in this worthy cause. Send one.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



prayed for release, which finally was 
granted after several years of pain. 

He was very careful in all his busi- 
ness dealings, and in his living with his 
fellow-men, that he might not bring re- 
proach upon the cause for which he la- 
bored. In his church work and his at- 
titude to God he was deeply conscien- 
tious. He had to deal with many of the 
difficulties in which churches must call 
for assistance; and we have been told 
that even those who found his judgment 
against their course, respected him for 
the honesty and fairness of his ruling. 

We close this sketch with a portion of 
a letter from Eld. D. L. Miller, who per- 
haps was more closely associated with 
him in his work for the general church 
than any one else now living: 

" My impressions of your father were 
formed after some years of acquaintance, 
personal association, and of committee 
work in the church. Once I spent some 
time in his home and had a most de- 
lightful season with him. That season I 
shall never forget. He opened his heart 
to me, as friend to friend, and I found 
depths of feeling and spiritual intuition 
that were a revelation to me in the 
character of the man and brother. He 
was then in the very prime of mature 
judgment resulting from increasing years 
of experience. I regarded him after that 
as one of the rare men of our church. 
To me he was more than a nominal 
brother. He was a sympathizing, helpful 
friend as well as a loving Christian 



brother. Many letters he wrote me en- 
couraging me in my work as Office Ed- 
itor of the Messenger. These letters I 
still have, and I prize them highly. 

" He was a clear and logical reasoner, 
of fine mental fibre, and a well-developed 
intellect. In committee work he was a 
wise and safe counselor, and was a 
faithful adherent to the principles of the 
Gospel as held by the church. Some of 
the wisest decisions of our Conference 
were suggested by him. One among 
many I may name: The ordination of 
elders only by consent of the elders of 
the State Districts. I was on the com- 
mittee with him when the answer was 
framed; and, while Brethren R. H. Mil- 
ler, Enoch Eby, Daniel Vaniman and 
myself were on the committee, the sug- 
gestion of the plan came from your fa- 
ther. I regard that as one of the best 
safeguards ever adopted by the church 
touching her ordinations. He was loved 
and respected by all who knew him." 

Expressions from others might be giv- 
en, but it is enough. His labors were 
closed near a score of years ago. The 
results of those labors are still evident 
in the church. It remains for the men 
and women of the church of today to 
respond to their opportunities as well as 
did many faithful ones of the times that 
are past, that the work may be as effect- 
ive and as lasting as theirs has been in 
this generation.

Wrap Baker^s Bread 



An exchange calls attention to the fact 
that bread as a practical, universal ar- 
ticle of diet seems to have received little 
attention from bacteriologists. From the 
time it leaves the oven until it reaches 
the consumer's table it has passed 
through the hands of several persons, 
has possibly been exposed to flies and 
dust, and is very likely to carry dan- 
gerous disease germs, because it is por- 



ous and susceptible to dust, etc. It is 
apt to gather typhoid bacilli or other 
disease bacteria and be the cause of con- 
veying infection. We think there should 
be an agitation in every city, and laws 
passed to compel bakers to wrap their 
bread as soon as possible after it is 
taken from the oven. It is very impor- 
tant for the preservation of health that 
such laws be passed and strenuously en- 
forced.

The Child-saving Work of Oklahoma 



By D. E. Cripe. 



The child-saving work of the Church 
of the Brethren of Oklahoma has just 
closed its tenth year, having been or- 
ganized in 1902. This was the first 
State District to take up the work of 
caring for the homeless child by the 
family-placing method, although several 
Districts had at that time built orphan 
homes and were placing some of their 
children in families. 

The subject of caring for homeless 
children was first brought before the 
District Meeting of 1901 by the late 
John F. Neher, and was considered for 
one year before final action was taken. 
The District Meeting, which authorized 
the work to be organized, was held in 
the Paradise Prairie church, near Coyle, 
Okla., October, 1902. Eld. Henry Bru- 
baker, now of Newberg, Oregon, was the 
moderator, and he, with the reading and 
writing clerks, selected the committee 
to take charjge of the work. 

This committee entered on this 
weighty undertaking with an initial fund 
of eleven dollars, and it was expected 
to raise the needed money as best it 
could. The sentiment of the District did 
not favor the family-placing method 
warmly in the beginning. However, 
an organization was effected and a char- 
ter was taken out under the laws of 
Oklahoma with the name of "The Ger- 
man Baptist Brethren Home Society of 
Oklahoma and Indian Territories," and 
was dated Nov. 3, 1902. Since the name 
of the church has been changed and the 
territories have been admitted as one 
State, the work has been rechartered as 
the " Child Saving Mission of the 
Church of the Brethren of Oklahoma." 

The first four years money was 
scarce and not many homeless children 
were found, so that not over four chil- 



dren a year were placed in homes. Since 
then more children in need of homes 
were obtained, and now the entire num- 
ber of children taken in charge and 
placed in families is ninety-four. The 
largest number ,of children cared for 
any one year has been twenty-three. 

This work in its beginning was found- 
ed on the fact that God in the infancy of 
the race instituted the family for the 
purpose of rearing the human offspring, 
and that this heaven-ordained home 
was a better place for the child than 
any man-made institution could possibly 
be. Experience has proved that there 
are very many good people who are 
anxious to take a child into their home, 
and do all that love and tenderness can 
to rear it to a useful life. This work 
assists the Father of All in "setting the 
solitary in families." 

Early in the work the problem came 
up — ^the problem which confronts all 
who would work for the good of home- 
less children — Shall we care for the off- 
spring of sin that is forsaken by father 
and mother? The Board felt the impor- 
tance of this problem and took it to the 
District Meeting for a solution. This 
conference took the position that the 
child is innocent, that it had no choice 
in its entrance into the world, that it 
is as sensitive to neglect and suffering 
as any child, and it is as promising as 
the average child, and that it has a soul. 
It was therefore decided that these un- 
fortunate children be taken in charge 
and placed in good families, the same 
as other children. 

Many families have found that in 
taking a homeless child into heart and 
home they have taken joy and happiness 
such as they had not known before.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



They have verified the promise that 
"he who receiveth one of such children 
in my name, receiveth me." It is some- 
times difficult to say which has received 
the greater blessing, the child which 
has found a home, or the family which 
has found a child. 

Early in the work it was found that 



to make it a success it was necessary 
to have some way of reaching the peo- 
ple. By the advice of some of our prom- 
inent Oklahoma elders a little monthly 
paper was started, which was called the 
Children's Friend, but is now known as 
Everybody's Friend.

Many years ago, when the country 
was yet new, a little church was built 
in a small place called Bradford, near 
Nashua, Iowa. The building, as shown 
in the picture, was painted brown, hence 
its name. The following poem was 
written by Dr. Pitt, who has a sister 
buried near the church, in the lovely 
vale: 



"There's a church in the vale by the wild- 
wood, 

No lovelier place in the dale; 
No spot is so dear to my childhood. 

As the little brown church in the .vale. 

"How sweet on a brig-ht Sabbath morning, 
To list to its clear-ringing bell, 

Its tones . so sweetly are calling, 

'Oh! come to the church in the vale.* 

"There's, close by the church in the valley. 
Lies one that I loved so well; 

She sleeps, sweetly sleeps, 'neath the 
willow, 
Disturb not her rest in the vale." 



Cutting Trees by Electricity. 



It is reported in the German press that 
successful experiments have been made 
in various forests of France in cutting 
trees by means of electricity. A plati- 
num wire is heated to a white heat by 
an electric current and used like a saw. 
In this manner the tree is felled much 



easier and quicker than in the old way, 
no sawdust is produced and the slight 
carbonization caused by the hot wire acts 
as a preservative of the wood. The new 
method is said to require only one-eighth 
of the time consumed by the old sawing 
process.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC 



A Dreadful Silence 

By Everett Marker. 



The eyes of the world are apparently 
closed to one great evil — that of lewd- 
ness. It is threatening our children; it 
weakens their minds; it destroys their 
usefulness. It is universal in our land 
and is causing many to tread the down- 
ward road. 

The goal of life is life. Therefore, 
we should guard our children against 
that which will ultimately destroy both 
body and soul. Our boys and girls 
should learn the meaning of sex from a 
pure source. The parents should teach 
it. They will learn it somehow and 
somewhere, and should not be left to 
find the light in darkness. 

God endows each one with the power 
of reproduction (a power next unto cre- 
ation) ; but, alas! how many are wasting 
this sacred endowment through igno- 
rance. 

Our children begin this evil practice 
in ignorance, but by the time they come 
to the realization of its effects, it is so 
deep-seated that it is impossible fot 
them to extricate themselves from the 
bondage, except deliverance come from 
the hand of God. 

What means this ominous and fatal 
silence on the part of fathers and moth- 
ers? We should awake from this fatal 
sleep and arm our children with the 
breastplate of moral and social purity. 
A few words in time will be sufficient. 

Our parents tell us qf the sin of ly- 
mg, the curse of drink, etc., but, when 
it comes to that of abuse and illicit in- 
dulgence, they become speechless. It 
seems as though a sense of delicacy for- 
bids an allusion to this important sub- 
ject. 

Did Paul forbear to rebuke his breth- 
ren because of fornication? How much 
less should we hesitate to teach our in- 
nocent children! 

Our children should be kept from the 
dance-hall. Here it is their passions 



become aroused, and .many a poor child 
is eternally ruined. In the cities, as well 
as small towns, our boys will go from 
the dance to the houses of ill fame and 
there satiate their passions, thus sow- 
ing the seed that will have to be reaped 
in later years by innocent children and, 
in many cases, by wives upon the oper- 
ating table. 

The young man that goes into the 
city and there is able to live a continent 
life certainly manifests one of the 
grandest traits of a noble character, as 
well as discloses the nature of his paren- 
tal training. 

The moving picture show is another 
weapon of Satan, by which numbers are 
slain. It entraps many of our children. 
Our daughters should not be allowed to 
enter the dark halls of those five-cent 
theatres: here many evil plans are made, 
and vice is paramount. In the larger 
cities these alluring dens are open on 
the Sabbath. Thousands of people at- 
tend these shows and stay away from 
church. It looks as though they have 
come to cap the climax and finish the 
work of ruin. One is forced to exclaim, 
How long will God permit it! 

Our children will, in some cases, go 
contrary to their parental teaching for 
a while, but the time will come when 
these teachings of dear old father will 
ring in their ears as never before, al- 
though he may be gone to his reward. 
We should remember that the prayer of 
a righteous man availeth much, and in- 
cessantly plead for the child. 

"Lorfl, g-ive the mothers of the world 
More love to do their part; 
That love which reaches mot alone 
The children made by birth their own, 

But every childish heart. 
Wake in their souls true motherhood, 
Which aims at universal good." 

Brethren, we should pray. God will 

hear.

Bro. George Myers Lauver, the sub- 
ject of this sketch, became widely known, 
especially in the West, on account of his 
connection with Bethany Bible School, 
and his Bible Institute work in many 
parts of the Brotherhood. 

He was born in Juniata County, Pa., 
Nov, 16, 1871, being the youngest son 
of Henry Lauver and Hanna Landis 
Lauver. His death, after a long and 




Eld. G. M. Iiauver. 

painful illness, occurred at his home at 
Maywood, 111., March 17, 1912, while 
he was yet in the prime of manhood, 
forty years, four months and one day 
being his allotted time of life. He was 
married to Sarah A. Hawk, of Hummels- 
town. Pa., Aug. 6, 1899. 

We know little of his boyhood life, 
save that when he was eight years old 
he came with his parents to Miami 
County, Kans., where he united with 
the church four years later. At the 



age of nineteen he was called to the 
ministry, and seems to have entered 
at once upon a special preparation for 
his life's work. He spent some time in 
McPherson College; then taught school 
a few years. After this he entered tht 
'college the second time, spending three 
or four years in the institution, com- 
pleting about two years of the college 
course. Later he attended the univer- 
sity at Lincoln, Nebr., and graduated 
from the University of Nebraska. 

While pursuing his studies, he did 
some pastoral work in Lincoln, as well 
as in Carleton, Nebr., and came from 
the latter place to Batavia, 111., where 
he had charge of the pastoral duties 
until he entered Bethany Bible School in 
1905. He was first a student and later 
became a member of the faculty. 

As a student, Bro. Lauver had a 
marvelous capacity for work. He could 
devote eighteen hours out of twenty- 
four to hard study, and keep it up for 
months without seeming to tire in the 
least. As a teacher, he often displayed 
an equal ability for work. While con- 
ducting Bible Normals he would often 
teach all day, and then deliver, a well- 
prepared address each evening. This 
he would keep up for weeks, and at the 
end of his engagement appear to be 
as fresh as when he began. 

It could not be said that Bro. Lauver 
was especially adapted to pastoral work. 
His forte was preaching and teaching. 
Bro, A. C. Wieand, president of Beth- 
any Bible School, says that he would 
class some of his sermons as the best 
he ever heard. He never lacked for 
something to say, when before an audi- 
ence, and what he said indicated that 
he was a thinker as well as a reasoner. 

He was a large man, — much too large 
for his good. He often said that his 
large body was against him, and for this 
reason he preferred the more retired

methods of working. But he had a fine 
brain, and knew how to get work out 
of it. Had he lived to the age of sixty- 
he would probably have been regarded 
as one of the best-informed men in the 
Brotherhood, in ecclesiastical history, 
which was his specialty in school work. 
Then he understood his Bible and knew 
how to teach its truths. He was never 
happier than when before a class, or 
when conducting a Bible Institute. 

Bro. Lauver did not lay up treasures 
on earth. He was too busy with his 
studying and teaching to think about 
making money. Then, on the other 



hand, he did not waste money. His was 
a simple life, and he needed but little. 
He loved his Savior, the church, and 
was closely attached to his family. He 
not only reverenced holy things, but he 
taught his children to show due respect 
to everything that was of God. 

As a teacher, he was highly respected, 
and the more his pupils learned of him, 
the better they liked him. In his death 
they feel their loss keenly. His depart- 
ure was a great loss to Bethany Bible 
School, for the reason that he was a 
growing man, and was well fitted for 
the departments entrusted to him. 



Feeding Hens for Egg Production 



By Chas. H. Keltner. 



In the production of eggs the hen 
serves in somewhat the same capacity 
as a machine, in that she converts raw 
materials into a finished, marketable 
product. The amount of her output is 
determined not only by her capacity, 
but by the quantity and quality of the 
food which is given her. 

Egg albumen is rich in nitrogen, and 
no hen can manufacture great quanti- 
ties of this substance from a ration 
which is composed almost entirely of 
non-nitrogenous foods. 

The Maine Experiment Station, which 
has given considerable attention to the 
poultry industry, recommends the feed- 
ing of the grain ration in the morning, 
scattering it in the straw of the scratch- 
ing place, and thus inducing a certain 
amount of exercise. A mixture of two 
quarts of corn, one of oats and one of 
wheat will be sufficient for fifty hens. 

During the forenoon the self feeder 
is kept closed, but in the afternoon the 
chickens have access to some of the fol- 
lowing mixture: 200 lbs. bran and 100 
lbs. of each of the following: Cornmeal, 
wheat middlings, gluten meal and meat 
scrap. 

Most any simple, home-made device 
which will allow free access to the food 



but prevent the chickens from getting 
into the box of food and wasting it will 
serve very well as a self feeder. 

Variety in diet is appreciated by the 
hen. Chopped alfalfa or clover is nutri- 
tious and seems to stimulate her appe- 
tite, while sprouted oats in winter pro- 
vide an excellent relish. This grain 
grows at a low temperature and can be 
easily sprouted in a box in the kitchen 
or furnace room during the coldest 
weather. 

Remember that the chicken is without 
teeth and so must have grit supplied, 
while some substance rich in lime is 
needed to furnish the mineral matter for 
the egg shell. 

Feeding Young Chicks. 

Nature has provided the real young 
chick with a quantity of food which was 
taken into its system before it emerged 
from the shell of the egg. This should 
be used before it is supplied with more. 
All successful poultrymen give the 
young chick no food during its first 
twenty-fo'ur hours, and some of the most 
successful do not offer it anything until 
after forty-eight hours. 

Moist food is still used by a great 
many, but there are many advantages to 



85 



€^\ 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



the use of dry food. After the first mix- 
ing it is always ready and chicks which 
are fed on it seem to be more free from 
digestive troubles. 

A mixture of rolled oats, cracked 
wheat, barley, buckwheat, and cracked 
corn or kafir corn makes an excellent 
feed. 

Plenty of clean, fresh water should be 
accessible, and as soon as the chicks are 
old enough to handle it whole grain may 
be substituted for the cracked. 

The Best Method of Preserving Eggs. 

The high price which eggs generally 
command during the winter months has 
led many to attempt packing eggs in 
the fall of the year. Lime, salt and other 
materials have been used with varying 
success. 

The material that gives best results is 
water glass. Eggs have been kept for 
two years in this and, on being removed, 
were found to be in perfect condition. 
This substance can be purchased at most 
any drugstore at not more than twenty- 
five cents per quart. It is prepared by 
mixing it with eight to ten parts of 
boiled water, and may be kept in a 
wooden, earthenware or iron vessel. At 
the temperature of a moderately cool 
cellar it preserves the eggs perfectly. As 
fast as the eggs are gathered they 
should be placed into the solution. Only 
strictly fresh eggs should be used. 

The Old Story in India. 

By Wilbur Stover. 

I have often heard some of our na- 
tive Christians tell the story of the Lord 
Jesus in a way suited to their hearers 
that is quite adapted to the requirements 
of the hearers. A religious beggar went 
once to a village and found a great 
commotion there. The best young man in 
the village lay dying. He went to the 
house of the sick man, and asked what 
was the trouble. They told him. He 
said he had a rertiedy, but that it was 
different from other remedies, for who- 



ever would take it would die, but the 
one it was taken to cure would recov- 
er. From the oldest to the youngest all 
refused to take it, saying that they 
would like to see the young man re- 
cover, but they themselves did not want 
to die. So the religious beggar offered 
to take it, and all fell to praising him 
and saying he was the bravest man of 
all, not only to find the remedy, but 
to take it himself, and lose his own life 
that their young man should live. He 
took it, and died. The man got well. 
And while the dead man's body lay on 
the veranda of the healed man's house, 
all the town was astir concerning the 
event. Presently, an old, old man came, 
an old religious beggar. He asked 
about the commotion and was told. 
Then, at his request, he was shown the 
corpse of the wonderful young mendi- 
cant, who would give his own life that 
another might live. He looked and, 
behold, the young man was his son! 
He took his son by the hand and, call- 
ing to him in a loud voice, said: "Son, 
arise; let us be gone from this un- 
grateful village. It is too ungrateful a 
place for even a corpse to stay." 
Whereupon the young, man arose and 
they set out together. But the young 
man who was healed said, " Wait, I will 
go with you." His people opposed him; 
they said all the houses and lands were 
his; why should he go? But he said, 
" Only one would give his life for me 
that I might live. He loves me. Love 
is of more value than many houses and 
much land." And he followed him.

A Strong Doubletree May Not Be a Satisfactory One 



r 



ti 



The American farmer is a man who 
possesses good judgment, and any ar- 
ticle of farm equipment which promises 
utility and durability is sure to be re- 
ceived by him with approval. The ac- 
companying illustration pictures a very 
popular form of wagon doubletree, 
which has won general adoption because 
of its strength and durability. A num- 
ber of large concerns are equipping 
their entire output with it. As one looks 
at its form, he can not fail to see that it 
offers maximum strength, having the 
draft pin in front and the clevis attach- 
ments on the rear. 

But the strength of this article is its 
greatest merit. As soon as one horse 
pulls ahead of the other the load be- 
comes unequally divided. The rear 
clevis is swung towards the tongue and 
the one in the lead is swung away from 
the tongue. The horse which has ad- 
vanced has less load than the one which 
has lagged behind. As the driver has no 
accurate method of reading the exact 
draft of each horse this condition is not 
realized, yet it is a fact, and of much 
more importance than one might sup- 
pose. If the line of attachment of the 
clevises is four inches back of the draft 
pin — and it often is — the horse in the 
lead may have an advantage as great as 
twenty-five per cent. Indeed, the three 
holes need be only a slight distance out 
of line to make the draft as if the one 
arm of the doubletree were an inch 
shorter th?in the other. C. H. Keltner.

The Annual Meeting for 1913. 

The Annual Conference of the Church 
of the Brethren, for 1913, is to be hdd 
at Winona Lake, Ind., in a charrning 
park, admirably fitted up for gatherings 
of this character. The meeting was held 
here in 1910, and the place is so well 
known to our people that it needs no 
special recommendation. 

The regular date of the Conference 
falls on May 13, but as this is rather 
early in the season for the conveniences 
of so large a gathering, the time is likely 
to be moved up to May 27, or possibly 
June 3. In due time the date will be 
announced in the Gospel Messenger.

Self and Sex Series 

No more popular series of books has been v^ritten. Millions of copies 
have been sold. They have gone, into all countries where Christianity 
and civilization have penetrated, and have been translated into many lan- 
guages and dialects. The value of these books to the human race is in- 
estimable. The subjects which they treat are ordinarily avoided, but are 
nevertheless of first importance The books are warmly praised by many 
eminent men and women. Lives are unhappy, miserable and often wrecked 
because of ignorance concerning the very things made plain in these 
books. 

There are four volumes for men and boys, written by Sylvanus Stall, 
D. D., and four volumes for women and girls, written by Mrs. Emma F. A. 
Drake, M. D., and Mrs. Mary Wood Allen, M. D. Following are the titles:

A Spot 
Overlooked 



Southern Delaware has been neg- 
lected by the Brethren both as a 
State for home building as well as 
for church building. We invite 
Brethren to investigate our advan- 
tages here. 

We have a fine climate both sum- 
mer and winter. Fine never failing 
soft water. Abundant timber for 
wood and lumber. Land is level with- 
out stone, easily tilled and capa- 
ble of wonderful development. We 
have a great variety of profitable 
farm crops such as grains, fruits and 
vegetables. Within 500 miles of 
Greenwood live 1-3 of the population- 
of the Union assuring us good mar- 
kets. Taxes are very low. 

Brethren are already looking this 
way with intention of locating. - 

We organized the first Brethren 
Sunday-school at Owen Station, Del., 
in April last wihich is in a flourishing 
condition. This is within the bounds 
of the Denton congregation, Md. 

Write to Mathias Hahn of Green- 
wood, Del., for Ms farm catalog*, also

ren.

Among You 



There are many who look forward for various reasons to a home in a 
climate less severe than the one you now live in. When you think of a move 
of that kind your mind naturally turns to 

Beautiful CALIFORNIA 

Other States may claim to equal or to be better than that State, but 
the tourist, the investor and the general public knows and admits that Cali- 
fornia has no successful rival either from the standpoint of climate or from 
that of profits that will result from investment and labor. 

Sacramento is the Capital of that great State. It is a beautiful city of 
clean, wholesome people. 

Within eight miles of the center of that City, upon lands which we are 
sellmg, and right on an electric line which takes them or their products into 
the City in a few minutes a 

BRETHREN COLONY 

is forming. Rev. Michael Blocher and M. J. Hoffman of Perth, North Dakota, 
were the first to settle upon the land. They have made arrangements for a 
lot upon v/hich to locate a church and they expect a strong congregation soon. 
Letters may be addressed to either of them at 323 "J" Street,^ Sacramento, 
California. 

No better land than we of¥er is to be found anywhere in California. 
Upon it can be produced successfully any crop or fruit grown in the State. 
Here you have good land, the best of climate and the conveniences of city 
life, and land such as this selling at $200 per acre, on easy terras. 

A postal card addressed to as at the office given below will bring you our literature and full particulars

Our Annual Greeting 

and MESSAGE to THE 
ALMANAC READERS 



As time passes each year brings progress and prosperity to us in 
increasing ratio, and our community grows more and more stable in 
appearance. The soil is yielding better and better returns with age 
and the increasing skill in handling and irrigating it, acquired by 
the farmers. As proof of this, Mr. B. F. McEndarfer won the much 
coveted $100.00 Silver Loving Cup awarded for the best general 
exhibit from a single farm for three years in succession. 

This year's exhibit consisted of 45 exhibits of grains. In addition 
to this distinction, Mr. McEndarfer won $180.00 in cash prizes, while 
others in the Valley won smaller cash prizes. 

Work has begun on the new reservoir near the old ranch head- 
quarters, and this water supply will help to irrigate the 1,500 acres 
of sod land which the Miami Valley Motor Power Company with their 
new gang plow have contracts to turn over during this Winter. 

The outfit for deep well drilling is installed and at work with many 
contracts ahead. 

During the past year 400 acres were added to the 200 acres of 
apple orchard already growing. 

And last but not least, the Finance Committee for the new Church 
report that $2,500.00 of the funds for the $3,500.00 Church are already 
subscribed and some of the material is on the ground for the new 
Miami Valley Church of the Brethren. 

And so with ideal climate, church and school privileges and con-

This Big Leather Roclcer 

Only a Sample Among 2,000 Of iViy Bargains 

Let me save you from 15 to 50 per cent a'nd send you better quality 
furniture than you can find elsewhere. I sell everything to completely 
furnish your home — rugs — china ware — sewing machines — washing ma- 
chines and numerous other articles including diamonds, watches and 
jewelry. Besides my big saving to you, I sell everything on small month- 
ly payments — pay a small amount of cash and a small amount each 
month. Everything that you receive from me carries my binding guar- 
antee if you are not thoroughly satisfied after receiving the merchandise 
in your own home, send them back at my expense and any money that 
you have paid in advance will be cheerfully refunded.
